Aroview: A sober minded recreation of plague-blasted England of the Middle Ages, with Bettany cowling-up as a monk on the run who falls in with a troupe of wandering actors, led by radical thinker Dafoe.
Arriving at a poverty-stricken village beset by a case of murderous witchcraft, the troupe decide to enact a play based around local intrigue and conspiracy, clashing with the local despot (Cassel) in the process. Although taking on the burden of period accuracy and moral speculation, this leans perhaps too heavily on its none-too-original detective story framework. Certainly an original choice of project for the dir. of THE ACID HOUSE however. From the stageplay by Barry Unsworth.

3 stars (Good Enough) A more than useful cast with an interesting screenplay. It does well in capturing a Middle Ages atmosphere (if there is such a thing) through the lack of lighting, its wardrobe and set designs.~tubbs
